Sample RIPng Routing Configuration File

To use any of the dynamic routing protocols with Fireware XTM, you must copy and paste a configuration file for the dynamic routing daemon. This topic includes a sample configuration file for the RIP routing daemon. If you want to use this configuration file as a base for your own configuration file, copy the text into an application such as Notepad or Wordpad and save it with a new name. You can then edit the parameters to meet the requirements of your organization.

Optional commands are commented with the "!" character. To enable a command, delete the "!" and modify variables as necessary.

!! SECTION 1: Configure global RIPng daemon properties.
!! Enable RIPng daemon. Must be enabled for all RIPng configurations.
! router ripng

!!! SECTION 2: Configure interfaces and networks.
! Enable RIPng on interface(eth0).
! network eth0
! ! Enable RIPng on network (2000::/64)
! network 2000::/64
! ! Set RIPng to receive-only on interface (eth2).
! passive-interface eth2

!! SECTION 3: Redistribute RIPng routes to peers and inject OSPFv3 or BGP routes to RIPng routing table.
!! Share route of last resort (default route) from kernel routing table with RIPng peers.
! default-information originate
!! Redistribute firewall static routes to RIPng peers.
! redistribute static
!! Set route maps (MAPNAME) to restrict route redistribution in Section 4.
! Redistribute routes from all interfaces to RIPng peers or with a route map filter (MAPNAME).
! redistribute connected
! redistribute connected route-map MAPNAME
!! Redistribute routes from OSPFv3 to RIPng or with a route map filter (MAPNAME).
! redistribute ospf6
! redistribute ospf6 route-map MAPNAME
!! Redistribute routes from BGP to RIPng or with a route map filter (MAPNAME).
! redistribute bgp
! redistribute bgp route-map MAPNAME

!! SECTION 4: Configure route redistribution filters with route maps and access lists.
!!Filter networks in incoming routing updates
! distribute-list LISTNAME in
!! Create an ipv6 access list to only allow network 3000::/64.
! ipv6 access-list LISTNAME permit 3000::/64
! ipv6 access-list LISTNAME deny any
!! Create a route map with name MAPNAME and allow with a priority of 10.
! route-map MAPNAME permit 10
! match interface eth1
